Thanks for stopping by. We are getting down to the wire here with the last few months of our Reading Challenges for the year. So let's get right to it.
12. A book set in the future.
Don’t miss this thrilling first look into the elite world of Peri Reed, government agency operative extraordinaire, and catch more of her character in The Drafter, the first book in the all-new suspense trilogy from #1 New York Times bestselling author Kim Harrison, out September 1.
Every hero, even the accidental ones, have a beginning.
Silas’s radical theory that drafters are not replaying time as much as they are temporarily sliding into an alternate universe has never been well-received, but frankly, the darling of Opti’s research has enough clout not to care, until a professor with a grudge tries to put a permanent end to it. Love can’t alter time, and sometimes, even being able to rub out a single mistake isn’t enough…
MY TWO CENTS:
I haven't read the first full length book(on my short list to read ASAP) in this series yet, however I can already tell this novella is probably a must read if you plan on checking the series out.
This short novella (approx 80 pages ebook- 99 cents) isn't set that far in the future, and although it's a little techie for me(I'm lucky I can turn my computer on and off- okay so I'm exaggerating some LOL), it's still completely interesting and captivating.
Part of the techie stuff is as follows(simplified):
In the future, a very small number of people can "draft"- basically manipulate small moments of time- HOWEVER there are/can be obvious consequences. "Drafters" need an "anchor"(again a small number of people) to well, anchor the "drafter". Because well, you know, pesty things like dual memories, numerous realities and insanity etc etc can pop up. Predictable that a "drafter" and "anchor" are usually paired up/connected.
Although Peri Reed IS NOT the main focus of this book (and she's not entirely likable here), she is introduced. Instead this story deals more with Silas and several other students in college all who are developing/training as "drafters" and "anchors" etc etc.
I'm betting you can guess that things...well they go awry... and the book ends in a bit of a cliffhanger, setting up the first full length book- The Drafter (now available in Hardcover).
I won't give anything else away, as all isn't what it seems...
